Ukrainian troops attack on the left bank of the Dnipro River in the Kherson region and in the Melitopol direction

This was reported by the Institute for the Study of War (ISW).

The General Staff of the Ukrainian Armed Forces reported that Ukrainian troops continue offensive actions in the Melitopol direction. Russian military bloggers claimed that Ukrainian forces continued to attack the Robotyne-Verbove line.

Ukrainian forces maintain positions in the eastern (left-bank) part of Kherson region and reportedly attacked in the area on November 22.

Russian bloggers claimed that Ukrainian troops were holding positions and attacking near Poima, Pishchanivka, Pidstepne, Antonivske highway, and a railroad bridge. Ukrainian military observer Kostiantyn Mashovets said there was also unspecified activity west of Oleshky.

He added that units of the Russian 328th Airborne Regiment are attacking Krynky from Korsunka and are constantly advancing along Oleshky-Nova Kakhovka.

Operation on the left bank of the Kherson region

On September 14 and 15, Ukrainian troops crossed the Dnipro River, presumably to consolidate their positions and prepare for an offensive on the left bank of the Kherson region. The Russian forces claim that the Ukrainian Armed Forces have been preparing to cross the Dnipro since July.

On September 20, the General Staff of the Ukrainian Armed Forces reported on new footholds of the Defense Forces on the left bank of the Dnipro.

The Institute for the Study of War said that units of two Ukrainian marine brigades probably crossed the Dnipro River on October 17-18 and landed on the left bank of the river in Kherson region.

On October 20, ISW stated that the Ukrainian offensive on the left bank of the Dnipro River in Kherson region appears to be larger than previous raids. Geolocation footage shows that the Ukrainian Armed Forces maintain a presence along the Dnipro bank and near the Antonivskyi Bridge. On the same day, Zelenskyy came to Kherson region to hold a meeting and present awards.

On October 21, ISW reported that the Ukrainian Armed Forces continue to conduct larger-than-usual ground operations on the left bank of the Kherson region. In particular, Ukrainian soldiers are fighting in the village of Krynky.

Also, according to the spokesperson of the Southern Defense Forces, Natalia Humeniuk, in order to "make life easier" on the right bank of the Dnipro River, it is necessary to clear a part of the left bank, which remains under fire from the Russian troops.

On November 1, the ISW reported that the Ukrainian military attempted to breach the Russian defenses near Pishchanivka and Poyma on Dnipro's left bank in the Kherson region. The army is also maintaining positions in Krynky and near the Antonivskyi roadway.

On November 8, it was reported that Ukrainian forces have moved a limited number of armored vehicles to the left bank of the Kherson region. Meanwhile, several hundred Ukrainian defenders are operating there.

On November 10, the Institute for the Study of War noted that the Defense Forces cut the Oleshky-Nova Kakhovka road in Kherson region and created additional logistical problems for the Russian occupiers in this area.

On November 20, Serhiy Bratchuk, spokesman for the Ukrainian Volunteer Army South, said that Ukrainian marines destroyed several enemy trucks on the Oleshky-Nova Kakhovka road.
